Daycare Enrolment Info

All daycare enrolment rules must be adhered to, 

failure to do so may result in enrolment being terminated 

Collars & Leads:

  • ALL dogs must be on lead and under control in the carpark and in the daycare reception area 
  • Please do not allow any dogs to meet on lead
  • All dogs must be wearing a collar when coming into daycare. Note we do not accept choker chains, prong, shock or buckled collars as collars or allow them in our daycare area as they are a safety risk.
  • Dogs must be wearing a quick release clip collar
  • Dogs who are being picked up or dropped off with our transport service must be wearing a harness with a back clip


Desexing & Seasons

  • Any female who comes into season is not permitted into daycare. If staff notice your dog coming into season you will be phoned immediately to collect them
  • Females can return to daycare 2 weeks after their season finishes. Please ensure they are bathed and all their bedding washed before returning 
  • Males ideally should be desexed before they have their first birthday. Staff will inform owners if dogs begin to display behaviours subject to increasing sexual maturity. If owners wish to desex when the dogs are older, they may require a stand down until neutering to avoid unwanted behaviours becoming learnt behaviours (habits)
  • Pregnant females are not permitted in daycare 


Vaccination protocol 

  • All dogs attending daycare must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination to be bought to the assessment 
  • No dog may enter the daycare area without staff viewing their vaccination records. Failure to bring proof of vacs to your assessment will cause it to be rescheduled. 


Medication

  • Please inform staff if your dog is on medication, as some medications require stand down from daycare until the course of medication is completed 


Bookings & Cancellations 

  • Cancellations should be informed at least 24 hours prior 
  • No shows may require payment
